    1. YES, YES, YES, YES, YES!!!!! Finally, I have come across a dystopian novel that does not just prattle on about how awful the world is for ten chapters and then toss in a mini-romance as an afterthought. I thought maybe Shatter Me (which, admittedly stands in a class of it's own) may be the only one, but Jess Petosa pulled it off in spades!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book!Exceptional brings us Ally, an Ordinary living in the settlement just outside the City where the Exceptionals live. Though sh [...]

    2. The beginning started off a little slow, then things got really interesting in the middle. Finding out what was really going on in the City. Reading about what abilities different people had. And then the ending just left me confused. Ally excepted things wayyyy to easily. Things that had me gasping and she was just like, "Ok, I guess I can see the reasoning behind that." What?? Don't know if I'm going to read the next book.

    3. ***NOTE: There is swearing in this review. Sorry!!!***This book. Oh lordy, this book. I bought this book on my Kindle after finishing The Breeders and finding it in my Amason Recommendations. The idea presented in the summary was interesting, a world of two evolved humans; one immune to a serum-virus, and the other a superhuman race of powerful, violet eyed beings.Sadly, the writing in the summary beat out the novel. Exceptional had its pros and cons, but in my opinion the cons FAR outweighed th [...]

    4. I really wanted to like this book, but it just fell short. I loved the idea of it, but there were many areas were is seriously lapsed. Here's a quick synopsis.Pros: - World is a great idea- Pretty decent overall plotCons: - Poor character development (characters often make random decisions that are not explained to the reader)- Kind of ridiculous romance (love-at-first-sight infatuation)- Lack of world building (we don't get much explanation of things)I was constantly put off by the lack of expl [...]

    5. I liked the idea behind this. The Exceptionals and the Ordinarys and the world it created. But from the very beginning I could sense something very sinister about it that I didnt like. It was like an itch that wouldnt go away and prevented me from enjoying the experience. And once the forced breeding was introduced my feelings were justified. It bothered me as much as it did in Wither, and even more at times because we were forced to accept Ally's situation. Maybe it has something to do with bei [...]

    6. As a disclaimer, I am going to remind everyone that our W Valley Women's Book Club just finished WARM BODIES. So as I started this paranormal, sci-fi piece my first thought was Yogi Berra's expression, "Deja vu, all over again." Two star-crossed lovers (although they never do itritating)from different sides of the tracks, and whose family would never agree to, etc. There was more technology, it's the world decades from now,wars are a thing of the past but the Exceptionals use their incredible po [...]

    7. I really liked this book. I found Ally to be a strong character and I absolutely LOVED Luke. He was so sweet and I thought he and Ally fit each other perfectly. I liked the secondary characters a lot as well. Aden, Luke's father, is a total jerk and I felt really bad for Luke. I'm kinda sad to say that the Rogue concept was a little dull because I really liked this book, but it's I'm still ecxited to see where the rest of this story goes. I can't wait to see what happens with Luke and Ally.

    8. I was intrigued by the book because I didn't see what was coming next. A lot of the typical dystopian fiction, young adult reads are somewhat predictable and this one was not. Loved Ally and her character development. I really was constantly surprised at the twists and turns in the story and can't wait to start on the second book.

    9. What I hate more than anything is having to write a bad review for a book. But I'm just going to treat this like how I would review a peer's creative writing paper. This book is a dystopian book. Scientists make a serum which causes genetic mutations and it is airborne. It spreads all over the word causing the population to perish to what is now known as Ordinary's: those who the virus does not affect and Exceptional's those who are affected by the virus and are superior beings. They have powers [...]

    10. Tiny spoiler warning:I found the plot very interesting in this book and still currently think that. The whole idea of Exceptionals and Ordinarys was very intriguing and that's initially what drew me to read the book in the first place. The thing that bugged me about the book was that I felt as if the author was so eager to move the book along that she didn't develop the situations that were happening or even some of the relationships. For example when Luke and Aden had their first fight it seeme [...]

    11. Exceptional by Jess Petosa was a novel with a very intriguing plot that captured me from the very beginning. The background to this book is that a virus was accidentally created that caused humans to either die, become enhanced with strength and speed, or be unaffected if they were immune. The virus split society in two; the Exceptionals, and the Ordinarys. Ally was an Ordinary and Luke was an Exceptional. Through the course of this novel the reader sees how their lives were inevitably connecte [...]

    12. So I have to say I wasn’t sure about this series when I first picked it out…but I was looking for something to read on my kindle and I saw some good reviews. All I have to say is I am so ecstatic that I did snatch up this book because boy was I wrong. I love books from self published authorse stories seem to go wherever they want.And this story was no different. This story consumed me…I am not joking when I say I could not put it down. The characters, Ally and Luke were fantastic together. [...]

    13. I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did. In spite of some minor problems, I was intrigued with the story and the world. Ally was a frustrating character because she made decisions that were clearly questionable, such as leaving the house when Luke told her that she needed to stay in for her safety that day. He should have been more clear, but it still seemed pretty clear to me what he meant, and she should have understood him. And, all of the things that they hide from each other was [...]

    14. Meh- I liked the concept, not something I have yet read in the dystopian genre. But the book didn't feel like it was finished all the way, kind of like a girl all dressed up to go out, but with wet hair and no makeup on. I just felt like it could have been polished up a little more. I didn't feel like the characters were developed enough to have the feelings they were having, and then when it did start to get good, it ended. Not sure if I will read the next one. Very interesting concept, but jus [...]

    15. I felt this story was very similar to the Hunger Games series. It is a quick read, entertaining for the most part. I do feel the author rush parts of the story. I was disappointed with how she did not develop certain characters, ie how Luke's mom was so in love with her garden then slipped into a room and never heard from; Aden and exactly what his powers were and why his relationship with Luke was so problematic. My hope is that as the series continues the author will develop the story and prov [...]

    16. This book is ridiculous. The plot is so far-fetched I couldn't even suspend disbelief and you kind of have to be open to that if you're reading dystopia. I mean the girl watches her boyfriend's dad kill her mother and two days later she moves back in the house with him. No biggie. ALSO Jesus Christ get an editor! There were numerous grammatical errors, including my personal pet peeve, an its / it's screwup. The horror! Not going to read the remaining books in the series.

    17. Finally finished it and I have to say that although I mostly enjoyed it I found it rather lacking in something and honestly felt like it dragged a little and found myself being forced to read on. And just when something interesting would start to happen the main characters Ally and Luke would just accept their circumstances and not continue to fight but succumb. Oh well, The premise of the story was still interesting and I liked it I just wanted more depth.

    20. While this book had a lot of similarities to other Dystopian novels that I've read I couldn't seem to put it down. I definitely recommend.

    21. good book, a little less sexual tension would have worked for me but a well developed story and characters that you felt could be real. a little SciFi but not over the top. I am on to book two

    22. This book is a great read. Right from the beginning I was hooked on everything from the plot to the characters. Must-read for fantasy/romance(maybe) readers.

    23. I really wanted to like this book. I liked the idea behind it, but it needed an editor. It read more like a fanfiction thana novel.

    25. I liked that this was different from other books I’ve read but what I didn’t like was the instant connection. It’s sappy and not realistic. I expected there to be more tension and anger with the characters. Especially from Ally. It was pretty good storyline but it was like everyone just rolled with the punches. I needed more fight from the characters. Overall it was okay.

    26. ********2nd Reading Review********I originally rated this four stars but a reread has left me with a 3 star rating as there are too many negative attributes for a four star but it is an interesting plot and I'm going to reread the second one immediately so I can get to the third for a first read.Quick Rundown: Ordinary Chick lives in the Woodcutters Suburb of 150 years in the future Chicago.

    27. Check out YA Book Queens!I made a list--a freaking list--on reasons why I hated this book. I don't mean I just didn't really like it and found it boring, I hated it. I had to force myself to continue. It was so predictable. This review was originally going to be in a Mini Review post, but I realized that I just had too much to say about this book for it to be considered a Mini Review. I want to start off by saying that I hate saying rude things about someone's book, but I do anyway. So when I ha [...]

    28. Exceptional is an outstanding novel with gripping detail and characters that the reader will miss when the book is over (I'm so glad there are sequels!). Exceptional takes place in 175 AV - the time after a deadly mutant virus sweeps across the world wiping out most of the population except for two groups- those who the virus mutates into a super-human population called the Exceptional and those who were somehow genetically immune to the virus and remain normal humans - the Ordinary.In this new [...]

    29. To be honest when I picked up this book I was 100% prepared to hate it.( and I never hate books but the beginning of this book was very cliché.) But then I started getting sucked into this world without knowing it and then I was like wow and no and OMG that did not just happen. And then when I stopped reading i realized I had been reading for 2 hours straight and was nearly done.Lets start with the pros of exceptional. First off I enjoyed it i was entertained shockingly i was very entertained. [...]

My situation isn't going to change, so I need to make what I can of it.”Thank you Ms. Petosa! The cover definitely says it all! This book is in fact "anything but ordinary."
